Local authorities in Hvolsvollur, in Iceland have confirmed that a volcanic eruption under the Eyjafjallajökull glacier has begun today.
It is reported that some farms in the Fljótshlíð are evacuated but volcano isn’t a threat to inhabited areas.
The Eyjafjallajökull volcano is known as active central volcano and his last eruption was recorded about 189 years ago. Local authorities are concerned about the fact that volcano could cause very fast melting of glacier which could cause floods in the area.
